Guilty Gear: Strive DLC character Asuka R# announced

Guilty Gear: Strive

Arc System Works has announced Guilty Gear: Strive downloadable character Asuka R#, who’s being added in the game’s Season Pass 2.

Asuka R# is being added to the game on May 25th alongside the new playable level “Tír na nÓg” and two bonus Guilty Gear 25th anniversary color packs.

It’s worth noting the game’s Season Pass 3 was previously confirmed – read more about that here in our other report.

Here’s a rundown on the new character, plus the new content:

Asuka R#

  • Name: Asuka R#
  • Height: 5’5
  • Weight: 128 lbs
  • Blood Type: Currently AB (for the 5th time)
  • Birth Date: November 10
  • Hobbies: Making buckwheat noodles in a Rube Goldberg machine, bonsai (specialising in succulents)
  • Values: Sol, Aria
  • Dislikes: Chaos
  • Affiliation: None
  • Weapon: Magic

He stands at the pinnacle even among the company of generally highly capable magic wielders. He is both a scientist and also unparalleled in his mastery of magic – what one would call a genius.

Although he is generally polite and humble, he often finds even his carefully considered statements can result in discord.

In contrast to his intellectual capabilities, he severely lacks in stamina, with the slightest exercise tiring him out. Any physically straining tasks are handled by custom-made bits of his.

Asuka continues to transmit “clear numbers” from space, in the hopes of bringing peace to Earth.

Introducing the New Battle Stage, Tír na nÓg!

The additional battle stage Tír na nÓg is home to a space colony created by humankind to survive in outer space. The previously abandoned and dilapidated colony has been repaired and found a new use.

From a giant telescope to a Japanese-style garden, this stage is populated by a variety of items reflecting the tastes of the current resident.
